2022 Eagles training camp: Eagles give up 3 players before deadline
The Eagles removed three more players from their roster on Tuesday to reach the NFL’s 85-player limit.
On Tuesday, the Eagles waived/injured WR Lance Lenoir, S Jared Mayden and CB Jimmy Moreland. These three players will return to the Eagles IR roster if unclaimed.
The Eagles began to cut their squad on Sunday when they waived OL William Dunkle and LB Ali Fayad.
The deadline for NFL teams to reduce their rosters from 90 players to 85 was 4 p.m. Tuesday. The Eagles’ roster is now technically down to 86 players, but DE Matt Leo is granted an international exemption.
Of the three players released on Tuesday, the biggest name in the group was Moreland, who appeared in 37 games with 10 starts in his NFL career with Washington and Houston. He suffered from an ankle injury but was a limited participant on the day he was waived.
The Eagles will have to eliminate five more players this time around next week. They will have two joint sessions with the Browns and the preseason game in Cleveland to use in their assessments.
There are two days of list reduction left:
August 23: 85 to 80
August 30: 80 to 53
After their time in Cleveland, the Eagles will travel to Miami for two more joint practices with the Dolphins before this preseason game in South Florida on August 27, just days before the final cuts.
Even once the Eagles settle on their initial roster of 53 players, there are usually at least a few more changes to come, either players claimed from other teams or players placed on IR.
